Setting a new standard in cryogenic transfer lines for hydrogen

Apr 26, 2022

In 1970 Nexans cryogenic solutions developed the first superconducting cable, vacuum insulated for cold liquid and gas.

In 1980 we built the first cryo transferline to the CERN organization.

After years of development and various projects, we can now use our transfer lines for cryogenic liquids in 2022 for decarbonization solutions with hydrogen as the drive.

Our first project has already been carried out in as part of the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) pilot project in Japan. Australian-made hydrogen will be shipped from Victoria to Japan following the arrival of the Suiso Frontier - the world's first liquefied hydrogen carrier. 

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. built a loading terminal for liquefied hydrogen. Nexans cryogenic solutions provided flexible, vacuum in-sulated transfer lines (highflex) which connect the LH2 facility to the ships bunker station.

More projects are planned soon. Learn more about our next hydrogen project together with J de Jonge group bv on May 9th to 11th 2022 at the world's largest hydrogen Summit & Exhibition Rotterdam Ahoy, Netherlands. Get more information at
